    I suspect I may be a Christmas light addict. I had thought I could put lights up Christmas 2013, and walk away clean. December 1st 2014 found me handing over more bucks to Bunnings, 'cos I wanted to do it just once more, and then walk away cleanly. Here I sit on 31st December 2014, knowing I barely have time to get ready for December 2015. A "friend" showed me RGB strips this year.

    I am drawn inexorably down the dmx/RGB path, like a moth to a flame ........

    I will be hitting these forums, possibly asking dumb n00b questions about software, hardware, interfacing with existing light strings, how to conceal expenditure from my wife - useful stuff like that.

    If you haven't found it yet, the new revised 2nd addition AusChristmasLighting 101 manual is a great resource for all things RGB and more. :)

    Yeah - read the manual - head very nearly exploded. Take a while for the grey matter to recover from the trauma of actually having to work.

    I diagnose C.L.A.P. You should see a specialist. I'm astounded to find there is any darkness in Rocky in December. Illuminate whatever there is! R
